Lesson Details

Bluegrass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I always listen carefully to what you are interested in playing and learning about music, and will provide you with the tools to play guitar or banjo the way you want to as quickly as possible. I teach a variety of styles including flatpicking and finger picking for both blues and bluegrass.

My goal is to develop your ability to play any genre or style you want, and to enable you to find an emotional connection with your instrument and your music.

I am well versed in music theory, improvisation, composition, technique, and instrument maintenance and care, and have several years experience teaching.

Teaching since:

I have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old, and I remember how awful my music teachers were at the time. I strive to do better than they did by truly listening to what you want out of music and giving you the tools to accomplish your goals. I love music and teaching and bring passion and excitement to every lesson in order to keep students engaged and interested in playing their instrument.

I play in multiple acoustic and electric bands and write and compose my own music. I also have experience with audio engineering, recording, and production and can help you start creating and recording your own music ASAP.
